Southern Euro States May Fail to Sustain Debt, Handelsblatt Says

Dec. 5 (Bloomberg) -- Greece, Portugal, Italy and Spain will struggle to return to sustainable public debt, Handelsblatt reported, citing calculations by the Freiburg, Germany-based Centre for European Policy.

CEP’s default indexes for Greece, Portugal and Italy, which measure debt sustainability, fell in the first half while Spain’s stagnated, Handelsblatt reported.

Greece, Portugal and Italy continued to import more capital than they invested, the newspaper cited the CEP figures as saying. Spain barely invested more capital than it imported, it said.
